The first Sherlock Holmes game.
Created by Parker Brothers in 1904.
For three to eight players.
The entire deck is dealt. Each player turns up the top card from their stack at the same time. If a player sees that another has turned up a card matching their own they “capture” that card. A “Sherlock Holmes” card allows the player to take all “captured” cards of any one player.
When a player has run out of cards in their stack three times, the number of captured cards that say “Thief,” “Robber” and “Burglar”are counted. The player with the most cards wins.
